Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The ethics of artificial intelligence addresses a number of moral and legal issues which arise if researchers are able to build machines with intellectual capacities that rival human beings. It considers the unexpected consequences, dangers and potential misuse of the technology. It also considers the ways in which artificial intelligence may be used to benefit humanity. These concerns are similar to those that arise for any sufficiently powerful technology and (for these issues) the ethics of artificial intelligence is a part of a larger discussion of the ethics of technology. The issue of robot rights is unique to artificial intelligence. AI may have the ability to one day create sentient creatures-that is, creatures which feel pleasure and pain-which may therefore deserve the same rights as human beings.
